Chess Table: 1997 - Gilman
This is the sketch of a table I was planning on making for my high-school senior project. It was to have 4 ebony lined "violin" holes around the circumference, but the main feature was the built in chess board which concealed a secret compartment. To open the compartment all you needed to do was press down on the right squares and it would pop open. I've tried at least 3 different versions of this system, but am afraid I can't get it to work.
